About us ‌

The Widening Participation and Outreach team run initiatives to provide students with a sustained programme of academic support, as well as information, advice and guidance. We work with a range of learners, from Year 5 with our primary programme, to our Year 9-11 programme for aspiring medics, to the Liverpool Scholars programme for post-16 students. These programmes are principally delivered to students from our WP Key Account schools. We also deliver a variety of programmes to Targeted Groups, such as mentoring programmes delivered in the local community.

At Liverpool we recognise that learners have individual needs and some may need different levels of support in progressing to higher education. That's why we work with various targeted groups, including young people from a care background, disabled students, young adult carers, estranged students, asylum seeking and refugee students, and students from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds.

We work in partnership with a number of organisations and Projects to extend our reach to these learners and have committed our support to improving social mobility by signing up to a number of covenants and pledges.

You can find out more about our work and team in the University of Liverpool Access and Participation Plan, the Reports that we publish or our Meet the Team pages.
